During the steady stream of breaking news last week, NPR News staff were mid-move to our new headquarters. Divided between two buildings, the news desks and shows reported hours of live coverage without missing a beat. Their work helped inform people across the country not only on air but on television screens as well.

On CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper, NPR investigative Correspondent Laura Sullivan provided insight into the personal life of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, information she gathered from her interview with a woman who knew him in college.

Earlier this week, NPR counterterrorism Correspondent Dina Temple-Raston offered PBS NewsHour viewers an update on the Boston bombings and what was then know about suspects in the case. See her here in the first live, television broadcast from NPR's new headquarters:
